Recital Application Materials
- Stage Layout Form (pdf)
- Submit a performance program to the Music Department Office via the "Program Order" web form a minimum of 14 working days before your recital/concert date. (Due to budgetary cutbacks and change to program formatting, voice students will be responsible for preparation and duplication of any translations).
- A draft of that program for you to proofread will be given to your applied instructor within several working days after submission. Faculty/Ensemble programs will be emailed, or placed in appropriate mailboxes.
- Proof and return to the Music Department Office. Students must have their applied instructor also proofread the program (signature required). Corrections will be made and if time allows a final copy will be given to your applied instructor for a final proofread. If time does not allow for a final proof, the original corrections to the program will be made and sent for duplication.
It is the performer's responsibility to deliver a copy-ready design of your poster to UW Oshkosh Document Services or a duplicating facility of your choice. The Music Department does not pay to have student posters printed. Posters for ensemble concerts will be paid from Music Department funds. Ensemble Directors are to use IRC Services in the basement of Polk for design, and Document Services in Dempsey for duplicating.
Please note: University regulations state that posters cannot be placed in the stairwells of buildings or on bare walls.
Student recitalists are allowed six (6) hours of Hall time for rehearsal. Check the Music Hall book in the department office for available times, and submit a room request form to Julie. Keys for the Music Hall are to be picked up just prior to your rehearsal time and returned immediately following rehearsal. Students will be charged a $20 deposit when keys are picked up which will be refunded when keys are returned. NO EXCEPTIONS! This is to encourage prompt return of key(s) that are needed by other performers for their rehearsal time. Please observe Hall etiquette, i.e. NO SMOKING, EATING, etc.
STAGE AND RECORDING WORK ORDERS
Completed Stage Work Orders and Recording Requests must be submitted to the Music Office two weeks (or earlier) prior to your recital. Payment for your recording(s) must be submitted to the Music Office within two (2) business days of the submission of your Recording Request. If payment is not received within this time, the Recording Request will not be processed, and recording will not take place. Students will be notified by their campus email address when the recording(s) is ready for pick-up. This recording will be held in the Music Office for a period of no longer than two (2) weeks and will then be recycled if not picked up.
PRESS RELEASE INFO -- SUBMIT VIA E-MAIL TEN (10) DAYS PRIOR TO RECITAL
Students are responsible for submitting the following information to Integrated Marketing & Communications via university e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The following information is to be included in the email: your name, hometown, instrument/vocals performed, major, activities at UW Oshkosh/in community, and education/career plans.
University Relations will prepare a news release and send it to the Northwestern and your hometown newspaper.
The banquet tables normally used for receptions after student recitals are missing from the music hall and, therefore, are no longer available for your use.
If you have any further questions, please stop in the Music Department Office (AC N206) Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
